In Review: Harley Quinn & the Birds of Prey (2020-) #3

The price on Harley’s head is getting higher and higher, and more and more of Gotham City’s most dangerous villains are crawling out of the woodwork to claim it.
Birds of Prey

Synopsis: The price on Harley’s head is getting higher and higher, and more and more of Gotham City’s most dangerous villains are crawling out of the woodwork to claim it. So where the hell is Batman? And after what she’s put the Birds of Prey through in just a few hours, is Harley going to have any allies left to protect her?

 

The Story

Picking the story up from where the last issue left off. Harley with help from Detective Montoya and The Birds of Prey has just robbed The Joker’s secret vault. Now laying low at Wayne Manor Harley Quinn is still trying to fix her relationship with Poison Ivy. Meanwhile, in Arkham Assylum, Mr. J is taking an almighty beat down by Gotham’s most notorious criminals but is about to be saved.

Out of the asylum and looking for revenge. Joker has put a reward out of 20 Million Dollars to the person that successfully hunts down and kills Harley.

 

The Artwork

Amanda Connor does a wonderful job with this issue and produces a lot of great set pieces. I loved the panels she drawn of the attempted killing of Harley at the burger place where she and Montoya are at. I also loved the intensity in Montoya’s face as she is about to beat up the scum that is threatening her at Gotham PD.

 

Overall

Both Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor continue to produce brilliant work with Harley and the Birds of Prey, but the Birds take somewhat of a backseat in this issue as they do a bit of surveillance work. They’ll most likely step in during the next issue at a time when they can make a real difference.

I really enjoyed the interactions between Harley and Alfred at the very beginning of the issue. Also the gross-out humor and jokes provide a fair few laughs out loud moments.

Overall. Great stuff. I can’t wait for the next issue.
